What types of damages are available in personal injury cases?

Knowing the types of damages that may be available when a victim has been injured by a negligent or careless driver is important. Economic recovery may be available from those who are liable for the damages the victim suffered, but exactly what types of damages are available?

The exact damages that are available depend on the situation and circumstances, however, there are several categories of damages that may be available through a personal injury claim. Damages may be available for medical expenses, as well as future medical expenses. Damages must also be reasonable and must be accurately calculated.

Additionally, damages may be available for lost wages and lost-earning capacity when the victim is unable to work or engage in the same type of work they did previously because of their injuries. If the victim's ability to earn a living as they did before is detrimentally impacted by the harm they have suffered in a car accident, they may be able to recover compensation for their damages.

Other types of personal injury damages that may be available include: compensation for disfigurement and permanent disability; loss of household services; loss of consortium and companionship; loss of enjoyment of life; and pain and suffering damages. Because of how important legal remedies can be for victims of car accidents, it is important to be familiar with what they are. Victims and their families should be familiar with the legal resources available to them and how a personal injury claim for damages can help them.
